AWS - Jefferson's welding encyclopedia (AWS jwe)

Organization: AWS
Publication Date: 1 January 1997
Page Count: 768
ISBN (print): 0-87171-506-6

This edition represents a major revision of this encyclopedia, changing its orientation to the authoritative information base of the American Welding Society, and providing access to its resources. Welding technology becomes more complex with every passing year, and has expanded to an extent that deifies containment between the covers of a book. This encyclopedia presents as much information as its practical, but it is impossible to provide an exhaustive report on every welding process, variation, application, technique or material involved in the welding industry. The Editor hopes Jefferson's Welding Encyclopedia will be a helpful resource to those who need authoritative welding information at their fingertips, and that it will be an effective starting point for those pursuing further scientific or engineering information. Following are some significant additions to the Eighteenth Edition: Welding terms and definitions standardized by the American Welding Society are presented dictionary-style throughout the encyclopedia. They are identified by reference to Standard Welding Terms. Standard definitions are printed in italics. Consensus standards, codes, specification, recommended practices, classifications, methods, and guides for welding processes and applications documented by AWS are appropriately referenced. Standards of related organizations are referenced when applicable.


No matter what your involvement in the industry, Jeffersons Welding Encyclopedia puts the world of welding right at your fingertips. A useful tool for any level in the industry, from student to... View More
